Cisse Leaving Newcastle In January A Big Gamble


The Chronicle is reporting today that Papiss Cisse could be leaving Newcastle this week – with a number of clubs interested in taking the striker immediately.

Papiss Cisse – could leave this week 🙁

We had reported earlier today that a number of strikers could leave Newcastle in the summer, but we didn’t expect any to leave in January – because what would happen if for instance Loic Remy gets injured?

Newcastle turned down a £4M bid from Trabzonspor for Cisse a few days ago, but news reports in Turkey suggest the club are ready to increase their offer for the Newcastle striker.

The Chronicle is reporting that a fee of over £6M would be good enough to get the deal done, but apparently there is a release clause in his contract, and that fee would have to be met.

And since that release clause would have been inserted two years ago when Papiss was signed, we assume it’s at least the £9M we paid for him from SC Freiburg.

But we think it would be premature to let Cisse go this week, and he is suffering from a lack of confidence and we should probably wait until Newcastle know what will happen to Loic Remy, before we sell any strikers in January.

It would be a big gamble if Papiss Cisse is sold this week, and we hope it doesn’t happen.

For the record, Papiss has played 79 times for Newcastle over the last two years and scored 29 goals.

What do you think?

    this post is once again absolute nonsense spouted by an absolute trout of a blog host.

    “The Daily Star is reporting the striker has a buy-out clause in his Newcastle contract, which is likely for around £10M, and that could be triggered by a club this summer.”

    yea lets include a buy-out clause for the same price he was purchased for

    He’s not really doing it for us at the minute but a couple of injuries up top and he will have to play regardless of form, we can’t let him go unless we have somebody able to step up.

    If we are looking to let players go it should be the likes of marv, obertan, and others like that who rarely play or when they do have no impact.

    I’d rather an 18 year old kid come on and be given a go instead of obertan.

    Maybe he’ll get proper service at other clubs. If that happens, I’m sure the goals will flow once more. No more playing as a second right back.

    It’s only a risk if we don’t get a replacement. De Jong certainly wouldn’t be any worse.

    you don’t need to read the blog if you don’t like it, if you’re just hear for the comments then the article doesn’t matter…either way we have a free forum to chat on and discuss everything to do with the club.

    I think with some lads like obertan it’s best to cut losses nw and offer him to clubs on a free.

    every year he sits here it costs us 1mil in wages, so best to just offload

    Yeh I get your point, people learn other languages out of necessity most of the time, some learn for interest but in general it’s to compete in a global market which english dominates thanks to years of colonisation and USA being a huge world power the past 100 or so years.

    I still think it could be taught so much better in schools if it wasn’t test based, a GCSE in german/french/spanish means little as all you learn are phrases to pass a test and not a working use of the language….be much better if it was taught in different way and engaged people more with it.

    On football I fancy us down at norwich, we have more away than home wins so I have plenty of confidence in the side.

    We just need to keep pressing the full 90, we won’t dominate the full 90, but we can’t just concede the whole of the second half. I also want to see anita given 90 mins, we always seem to struggle when he goes off.

    I can’t believe for a minute there’s a 9M buy out clause, shat if he was banging in 25 a season ????
    TS,
    I don’t think it’s a simple as just giving him away, I’m sure they would have paid Xisco to go, after Obertans disastrous time here I bet there’s not a club in the world willing to pay him even half what we are and he’s got every right to see out his contract and go somewhere on a free.

    My uncle gets to a lot of 18s games, his grandson plays very young junior level for newcastle (he’s 8/9 year old), left sunderland to go to the toon…but he was telling me only a foreign midfielder (people here told me kemen) was a stand out, the rest looked good just nothing special.

    Hopefully that;s just because kemen was so good he made the other good lads look average. Either way it will be good if we can start bringing them into the fold like southampton do so we don’t need poor players to be back up, we can rely on the kids to step in and fill gaps.

    not much of a gamble in my book but well done again ED…you don’t care if your headlines are complete bollox or not…you just want to provoke responses which is what you do best.

    Anyway…back to the purpose of the thread…where’s the gamble in getting 60k off your books for a player who isn’t playing and is obviously very unhappy.

    You know when a footballer is unhappy because the girlfriend always get the brunt of the players frustration. You don’t kick out out a bird like Cisse’s ex unless you’re really unhappy and in a really bad place.

    It’s been going on for so long now even if he got back in the team it wouldn’t be the same for the lad so he’s off for sure and he’ll be off this week at some point IMO.

    And no gamble whatsoever

    yeh i know it’s difficult, why would obertan take a wage cut somewhere, but maybe he just wants to play, you never know. Some players do take pay cuts, not many though.

    I think the club just worry they don’t have any kids who can take the spot, so until better players come in the likes of obertan are needed as back up.

    I personally think it’s time for him to move on, as we as a club cant be gambling with time anymore when results are given requirement!

    I have to replace staff in my work when targets and general job descriptions ain’t being met.

    It’s a shame but can be costly in many areas (and for NUFC it’s more about the goals and points)

    We need to be making all right moves with little error if we to compete at the level we did in the Nineties.

    I’d get rid if the offer came in even close to 6mil. The problem is I’d rather have cisse than nobody and an injury or two could mean he’d be needed to start games for us.

    If Cisse starts regularly I think he will start scoring again. We just have to play a style that suits him.

    He could have had a couple of goals this season but Remy wouldn’t pass.

    we don’t need cover…we’re safe in the league, we have no aspirations to win anything so Ashleys plan working a treat. We have til next August to get 2 replacements for Remy and Cisse and looks like De jong is coming soon anyway.

    There is no inherent risk in getting rid of Cisse without a replacement before the summer…none at all

    the problem is do we change the set up just for a guy who may or may not start scoring?

    For me, the way we played at west ham, with cabaye advanced and sissoko running in behind the fullbacks, getting to the byline and crossing, cisse would have chances to score, it would then be up to him to take them.

    I think in the past cisse’s runs (which usually end up offside) have been a lot more successful when cabaye was right behind him (or marv), when deeper it just takes that split second longer to pick the pass.

    I now see why Cabayes price has gone up to 35m.
    If we can. get Clement Grenier ,Remy Caballa ,and Luuk de Jong in exchange for him it will be a brilliant piece of business , almost on a par with the Carroll coup

    there is a risk as the club don’t seem to rush and buying, only if deal is right, so could end up losing cisse now, remy not staying, shola going and us just having gouff in the summer and needing to buy 2/3 forwards in the summer which will never happen.

    I think Cisse asked for a new deal after finishing top scorer last season, the hierarchy said he didn’t deserve one on last seasons return, he said well if you didn’t play me on the wing and had of bought some decent players at the start of the season I would have bagged twenty, JfK laughed at him after a conversation wigh Mikey and started calling him Cissy every time he saw him, hence his trying to force a move.

    Transfer

    ST is the hardest position for us to buy. Bigger transfer fee = bigger risk. I think cisse despite being on fire when he came has represent a mistake, a costly mistake. We are now cautious and rightly so. Remy on-loan and wanting De Jong on loan show we don’t want to make that mistake again. Try before you buy. Another innovative policy from the club.

    Transfer- Dan Barlaser has been with the toon since he was nine.
    He’s just 17 and not yet a regular starter with the under 18’s but
    he’s one to watch. Tall, rangy 6′ full of running and tricky, right
    sided midfielder/ winger. He went to Charles Thorp and they
    rate him highly.

    nice to read a match report on man u official site saying we adapted to conditions better ,played freeflowing football,and deserved to win, especially after last years 1-7 and 3-0 defeats to them. last season we put out very young sides in u 18 as players were required for u21 side . this year we are benifiting from the players being older and more experienced. hope we keep up the french scouting trips at youth level as kemen seems a good buy.think armstrong who is in the eng u17 squad for two games this week must be the best prospect as a striker since i have followed reserves and juniors,50 years plus.

    Bollance,
    I’m not sure if Cisse was a costly mistske he’s a proven goalscorer everywhere he’s been, I just think he’s been managed poorly, Pardew alliwing himself to be manipulated by Ba last season was pure weakness.

    Refusing to wear the WONGA logo and being spotted late night in Casinos – seems it is not just the offside rule that he constantly breaks.
